    Whiplash Injury in Merseyside


    If you have been involved in an accident and sustained a whiplash injury in Merseyside, you may be wondering if you have good grounds for filing a personal injury compensation claim. If you have a genuine case of whiplash, and can prove that the accident in which you sustained it was not your fault, then you may be entitled to claim for your injury. Although most whiplash injuries arise from road accidents, you can receive a whiplash injury in Merseyside in any accident in which your head jolts severely, perhaps as a result of a blow to the head.

    How much compensation might I receive for an injury?

    It’s difficult to predict how much anyone might receive in compensation for an injury sustained in an accident that can be proven not to have been their fault. Let’s take a minor whiplash injury, for example: the Judicial College’s guidelines state that, depending on how long it takes you to fully recover from the injury, from a month up to a year, you could expect to receive between £1,705 and £3,520. If you took two years to fully recover from your whiplash injury, then you might receive somewhere between £3,520 and £6,380. If the injury were more serious, then you would receive more in compensation. However, these amounts are only for the pain, distress, and suffering caused by your whiplash injury.

    You could also claim for loss of earnings, damage to personal property, and the cost of medical treatment or expenses, although you would have to have receipts and wage slips in order to claim for such things.
